What Makes Us Different

Irene and Les Astbury (my grandparents) opened the pet shop on 9th March 1981, and took £9.00 that day. They converted the shop from a laundrette (The Coin Wash) into a pet shop. Since Grandpa passed away in 2007, Stuart (my brother) and I took over the running of the shop along with my Nana (91) who still comes down to the shop Monday to Friday.

From 2007, the shop has gone from strength to strength and we have extended our shop, made our stock room smaller allowing more room in the shop for products to be displayed and more recently opened upstairs as part of our shop.

We were delighted to hear that Nana (Irene) was nominated for Cheshire Women of the Year Award back in March 2017. Nana said she was “Very honoured to have been recognised and I still have no idea who nominated me!” She attended a special lunch and ceremony at Eaton Hall in Chester with her granddaughter in law Natalie Parks, where she picked up a Lifetime Achievement Award which is on show at the shop.

This last month has been very busy for us at the shop. We have expanded our shop upstairs to make a room full of dog beds, cages, etc so you can bring your dog in and try before you buy with plenty of room to move round. In the other rooms upstairs, we have opened a new and used horse tack and equipment area. This has been extremely popular with our customers since we had our Open Day in April! So please come and have a look upstairs in our new shop!

More Than Just A Pet Shop
